Palm Square.

tropical terrace
Client profile.

Our clients wanted to transform the outdoor terrace of their Victorian property in Bermondsey into an al fresco dining spot. 

We designed a contemporary terrace with lush tropical greenery to pair seamlessly with the modern interior style.

Materials & Planting.

Composite decking and porcelain slabs with a white gravel infill offer contrasting textures. 

White rendered retaining walls and timber cladding complement the property's contemporary aesthetic. 

A feature Palm tree provides vertical and sculptural interest.

The sunset hues of Kniphofia and Crocosmia add vibrancy and splashes of colour in the plush green tropical foliage. 

tessellated terrace 

A tessellated terrace provides zoning and low-level interest in this compact space.

The zig-zag formula transforms the terrace floor into an attractive feature. 


The contrasting hard landscape materials laid in this geometric pattern gives the illusion of greater depth.

a luscious backdrop

The white rendered retaining wall filled with a variety of tropical plants extends across the length of the rear boundary wall. 


The lush foliage softens the clean lines, adding texture and pops of colour creating a verdant backdrop. 

Bifold glazing connects the open plan kitchen-dining space and outdoor terrace areas.

We wanted both zones to feel interconnected with a complementary aesthetic and flush threshold. 

The outdoor terrace becomes a harmonised extension of the open plan interior to create a larger entertaining space.
